Gardening Granddad

It has been a mixed bag with the weather this week - sunny one moment then torrential rain and heavy wind the next! I am just hoping that it is a little nicer for this weekend as I am going to the Think Parrots show down in London!

I have a card to share with you which I have made for hubbies Granddad for Father's Day:
I used a heavily patterned card blank to give the impression of  a full garden in summer. I then added a strawberry panel to this using the Papermania Country Life patterned paper, and rounding the edges, after first adding a blue flower ribbon pennant to one side. I then added a strawberry panel from the same paper range and added some gardening stickers from out of my stash. I also had these carrot stickers left over from when I bought my ovo cage for the mice. Finally I added a tag to bring a mmore masculine element to the card and wrote Granddad on it in gold pen.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
AHS #215
Cute Card Thursday #481 Boys/Men
 CCM #190 For a special man
Crafty Calender - Boys will be Boys

I alos have some random pictures from up by where we have a little dyke. I was looking for dragonflies and damselflies, but I did find these:

I would also like to share an update on my fishtank - 146hr34
Thank you for looking,
